Description

The Mansions On Fifth is a 23-room luxury hotel that pampers guests with exceptional service in warm, magnificent surroundings.

The hotel began as a pair of mansions commissioned in the early 1900s by Willis F. McCook, one of the nation's first corporate lawyers. The McCook Mansion became the family homestead and the neighboring McCook-Reed Mansion was constructed for McCook's eldest daughter and her new husband.

Both the McCook Mansion and the McCook-Reed Mansion were built in the Elizabethan revivalist and Tudor styles. Both mansions shine with luminescent art glass windows, hand-painted or hand-crafted tile work and carved woodwork that depict motifs, scenes and heraldic ornament reminiscent of the manor houses of the British Empire.

In 2005, entrepreneurs and preservationists Richard Pearson and Mary Del Brady began a multi-year effort to purchase and develop the Mansions with a commitment to restoring the elegant property to its original grandeur. As a result of the historic significance of the Mansions, the restoration garnered tremendous community support from the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation and the City Of Pittsburgh, among others. Viewed as a testament to the craftsmen and artisans who built Pittsburgh, the Mansions were restored consistent with Secretary Of Interior standards, and have been approved for listing with the National Register Of Historic Places.

Original room configurations, finishes and appearance are being preserved while the premises are being upgrading with state-of-the art mechanical, electrical and communications systems.
